Another bummer from the year of 2020: Fungie the solitary dolphin, a 37-year-mainstay of Dingle Harbour in County Kerry, Ireland, has gone missing and has likely died. He was more than just an animal to the locals. He was a world renowned and beloved tourist attraction. This gets filed under news of the weird because it's extremely rare for a dolphin to remain in the geographically small zone of a single harbor for practically an entire lifespan. Bottlenose dolphins normally live about 30-40 years in the wild.

To bad that political parties don't change their corruption ways
I think it would due lot of non sense would stop if both parties try to be honest with the people they represent
